Name That Olympian

We have not been to the Games yet (hopefully that will change today), as we have been preoccupied with figuring out basic life things--like how to eat (we found some good baozi on the street yesterday) and which buses to get on to go to places like the bank (we are now account holders at ICBC, the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China).

In the meantime, we did have a close encounter with an Olympic athlete at the airport. It wasn't Michael Phelps, Celia...sorry about that! In fact, we have no idea who he was. All we can tell you is that he attracted quite a bunch of TV cameras and reporters. As you can see, we decided to get in on the action. As this picture was being taken by Desi (who thinks the guy is here for the taekwondo competition), the media folks were snapping away as well. So we may very well be in the paper (or maybe even on TV) in some place like Thailand...

Well, I can tell you who he's not! He's not one of the beach volleyball babes.....not wearing skimpy bathing suit w/sand in his teeth!

My guess is that he is from the mens gymnastics team?
